Dave Sullivan of an analyst of AutoPacific,
“Ford was looking for a skill set and went where the expertise was,” “If it were in Michigan, they would have done it in Michigan. But carbon fiber bodies are still an immature technology and there is not a lot of selection of available vendors.”
Ford GT was developed secretly in the Ford Performance Division and the main advantage of the car is its fiber carbon body with ultimate racing style. The car comes with twin-turbocharged engine and will come with the best engine that Ford ever has.
While comparing to its power to weight ratio, the new Ford GT will beat all other car in its range. Most probably, the new Ford GT will come with six-figure power tag and relationship with Multimac will gives more confidence to the consumers.
